Does the institution cover sustainability topics in new employee orientation and/or in outreach and guidance materials distributed to new employees, including faculty and staff?:

A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

Sustainability is referenced in the Engaged Cornell section of a “This is Cornell” resource document that is made available to new hires in the Center.
A new Cornell employee's first day on the job is completely different now than it was even a year ago, thanks to the new Cornell Onboarding Center, which provides a "one-stop" service that takes the place of visiting various campus offices to conduct the business of becoming a Cornell employee. This allows new employees to complete required paperwork; activate a Cornell NetID and email account; receive a staff photo ID; select parking and transportation options; review benefits information; and enter personal data into the university's database, thus eliminating the complexity of coming to campus multiple times and stopping at the various locations on campus.
